Rudy Giuliani is no longer welcome on Fox News, and he says he doesn’t understand why. Whether it’s a legal move to shield against further liability, since both Giuliani and the network are facing lawsuits from Dominion Voting Systems, or a side-taking in the reported rift between him and the former president, Giuliani says he just wants a clear answer.
Here’s Giuliani on Real America’s Voice, insisting that he’s completely in the dark about the network’s recent rejection of him, even as he admits that it’s about spreading disinformation.
“I’d like to know what it is that I said that they regard as not being true. We take the same position with regard to Dominion. We’re in the same lawsuit.”
Rudy complains today that Fox has never told him the reason why he is banned from their network. He says Fox is playing a “fascist game” with him because they are “afraid of George Soros.” pic.twitter.com/yMvMLJtrBF

Giuliani, who served briefly as the personal attorney to Donald Trump during his presidency, and after Trump’s previous personal attorney faced charges for lying to Congress on the then-president’s behalf, is going through a lot these days. Besides his Fox News ban, the suspension of his law license both in New York and Washington D.C., and of course the aforementioned defamation lawsuit by Dominion, he’s also reportedly been stiffed by Trump on legal fees.
However, Deadline reports that at least some insiders at Fox say there’s a different reason Giuliani isn’t being invited to appear — that it’s not about anything he says or does, but simply that he has become completely irrelevant. Now that he’s not speaking on Trump’s behalf, they describe him as someone who barely even merited any media coverage on the 9/11 anniversary, despite his historical connection to the event.
